Candlelight Tours

This event has now sold out.

A magical opportunity to see the magnificent state rooms adorned with opulent Christmas decorations and beautiful flickering candlelight. Join one of our knowledgeable guides for a tour where you will see the wonderful decorations, learn about how they were created and find out the inspiration behind each room setting.The pièce de résistance for this year’s hall display is in the Statue Gallery where there will be a full size parterre garden, inspired by Italian gardens of the 18th century. Designed by landscape gardener Lucy Roberts the display will feature a wintry scene with the formal terraces laid out with box hedging, tall cypress trees, classical sculptures and wildlife and visitors will have a chance to wander through the magical setting
